Thu, 13 Jul 2017 11:00

TEAM ANNOUNCEMENT: Flank Shaun Adendorff will make a first start for the Bulls when they take on the Stormers in Pretoria on Saturday - their final Super Rugby league game of the season.

Adendorff has played off the bench twice and will take over from Ruan Steenkamp, with the latter swapping places with Adendorff and move to the bench.

This swap is one of two changes in the pack that came up short against the Southern Kings last weekend.

In the other, Pierre Schoeman earns a start at loosehead, with Lizo Gqoboka out with a niggle.

The bench will see the return of Piet van Zyl as back-up scrumhalf and Trevor Nyakane as back-up prop.

Bulls: 15 Warrick Gelant, 14 Travis Ismaiel, 13 Jesse Kriel, 12 Jan Serfontein, 11 Duncan Matthews, 10 Tian Schoeman, 9 Rudy Paige, 8 Nic de Jager, 7 Jannes Kirsten, 6 Shaun Adendorff, 5 Rudolph Snyman, 4 Jason Jenkins, 3 Conrad Janse van Vuuren, 2 Adriaan Strauss (captain), 1 Pierre Schoeman.
Replacements: 16 Jaco Visagie, 17 Trevor Nyakane, 18 John Roy Jenkinson, 19 Ruben van Heerden, 20 Ruan Steenkamp, 21 Piet van Zyl, 22 Tony Jantjies, 23 Burger Odendaal.
